Sounds extreme right? Think again...
Just imagine if you were a tenant trying to get into your home on Christmas Eve..gated community and all of a sudden you can't get into your house..neither can your room mates. Imagine the stress a mother feels..when her son is so far away..she does her part and calls all her connections he and his room mates gets back in and before you know it..they find out...No tenants allowed..they had a lease and now..there is an eviction notice..on the door but not before the landlord fabricates a story...a story to the HOA..and the tenants don't want to take part nor does the mother...
Now the landlord is upset because it could have worked if only the tenants had gone along with the story and now without a choice the landlord must evict these young men.... they are now looking for a new home for the boys!
While there are record numbers of short sales on the market... you have to wonder, how many of these properties are on the market for rent today? And what is the intent...to get current on the mortgage and continue paying..or will there be more stories of tenants with eviction notices on the door?
Tenant Beware It Could Happen To You!
I don't necessarily mean do a background check but maybe everyone should do their homework...
- Screen the landlord like you would a buyer or seller
- Public records are accessible on the net and in some states...Liens and Lis Pendens are public knowledge
- Read and understand the Tenant and Landlord laws
Tenants usually pay first last and security...they sometimes have their credit pulled..background check done..a determination is made if the tenant can pay the rent....they go through quite a process...and maybe so should the landlord!
